By Burhani Muhunzi, SUMAIT University

Zanzibar, Chukwani, (SUN) – The President of the United Republic of Tanzania, Dr. John Pombe Magufuli and the President of Zanzibar, Dr. Ali Mohamed Shein have been loudly commended for their exemplary commitment in promoting Kiswahili Language.

About 100 members of the Chama cha Lugha na Fasihi ya Kiswahili Tanzania (CHALUFAKITA)  who ended their three day national symposium at SUMAIT University on August 5, equally commended the Ambassador of Kiswahili in Africa, Madam Salma Kikwete for her dedication in promoting the language in the continent.

The Secretary General of the CHALUFAKITA which organized the symposium, Dr. Athumani Ponera said Dr. Magufuli’s deliberate moves to use Kiswahili widely at national and regional forums indicates his seriousness to spread the language nationally, regionally and internationally.

In a speech at the SUMAIT University Graduation last December, Dr. Shein directed universities to support the Zanzibar based East African Kiswahili Commission (EAKC) in its efforts to develop Kiswahili as the lingua franca for regional and international communication.
